Actinidia chinensis ‘AU Golden Tiger’
AU Golden Tiger is the new male golden kiwi culitivar developed at the Alabama Agricultural Experiment Station at Auburn University, Alabama. It is the male pollinator for AU Golden Sunshine. It should be noted that a male variety must always be planted with female selections for proper pollination and fruiting. AU Golden Tiger is the only plant that blooms with and overlaps the bloom period of AU Golden Sunshine. The male does not produce any fruit. In general one male is needed for each nine females.
